The High Life

Designed by Joyce Wang, the newly unveiled penthouse at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park offers refined pied-à-terre living in one of London’s most prestigious locations

Following the most extensive refurbishment in the landmark hotel’s 117-year history, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has debuted its ‘crowning jewel’: a three-bedroom penthouse by acclaimed Hong Kong designer Joyce Wang. Wang’s studio, which specialises in hospitality and residential interiors and furniture design, is also behind the Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong and is currently involved in designing residences Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok.

Two interconnecting suites, the Mandarin and the Oriental, form the expansive suite that covers all of the ninth floor. Five private alfresco terraces boast panoramic views over Knightsbridge and beyond, while inside the design evokes the golden age of travel and elements of Art Deco design. The light-filled penthouse embraces soft, muted colours and botanical-inspired textures.
